    But what do I know. I'm just sitting here without power like 93% of long island and don't have a straight path to get anywhere because of downed trees and power lines. There are beach side roadways that are gone. The jettys that were used to build long beach are exposed. 110 homes burned to the ground in one area near the Rockaways.

    Lets not forget the crippled mass transit system in and out of new york. Do you know the subway system was flooded as far north as at least 86th street? Alphabet city is devastated. There are subway stations still underwater.


    That's just in nyc/long island. I could mention nj too, but I'm having to listen to the radio for news and I can only get the long island local station simulcast on fm.
    All the way to 86th? Wow, that is far. Nick I hope that you are fine. I been looking at all the pics and amazed by the damage. I can't believe that the subway is flood and the damage to NJ , it all so surreal.

    Power still out to a huge portion of long island. Gas is a hot commodity and price gouging galore is happening (my neighbor told me that the guy told him $20 a gallon. The man is lucky the neighbor's kids were in the car, or he might not have a jaw anymore). Trees are starting to get detangled from trees and power restored to some neighborhoods. Of course there are insane lines for things you'd expect: Ice, gas, water, milk, bread, generators etc.

    Below 34th in Manhattan there is no trains, only bus service. There are shuttles across the bridges for commuters from Brooklyn as all the tunnels are still flooded. Commuter rail is slowly coming back online with the only two lines that don't ever come near the South or North Shores. Thankfully, I take one of those lines to work so I was able to get back to some semblance of normalcy today. I had coworkers who rented a hotel room this morning so they could shower. Hotels are keeping some rooms open to rotate them around every 3-4 hours or so to help those who need a shower can run up and take one.

    Oh by the by: all people who might be necessary for clean up or other activities to benefit the city in recovering are going to be pulled for the New York City Mother Fucking Marathon on Sunday. And I hope someone talks some sense into these people before it happens. Instead of having them run over the bridges, how about we make them run through the midtown tunnel which is still full of water. Maybe that will be a better story...

    But overall, I'm fine. I'm cold and I'm really short on patience (more so than usual), but I'm fine. Thanks for the kind words, but they are better used for those that lost their homes, loved ones...like the woman who lost her 4 and 2 year old boys to storm surge waves as she was trying to escape Staten Island.

    I'm slightly inconvenienced because I can't shower....

    ....ok everyone is slightly inconvenienced because I can't shower, lets be honest...but it's nothing compared to that.

    It really puts things into perspective, man. I was working with clients from NY just tonight and they were telling me how god awful it's been there. I guess the best news is that New York is such a strong city with forward thinking people that will rebuild from such a horrific event even better than before!

    Stay safe, Nik!

    I'm just glad that you and your family are OK, everytime I turn on the news and see New York I worry about you and all our other east coast fans.

    I am right with Nikvoodoo this. I use to live in tornado alley along the Mississippi. hell if it wasn't flooding then you have to worry about tornadoes ripping your life apart along with your house. It is really weird to see a front loader being picked up and tossed like a toy. there have been plenty of times i have been woken out of bed from the tornado sirens going off, the power being off for days. the news can only show you a glimpse into was is really going on.
    Nikvoodoo, I hope for you and your families safety take care.


    i suppose the baby wipes are getting kind of old huh? (just referencing we're alive after war.)

    think i owe you a public apology, i was acting like a bit of an ass. i won't try and explain it, suffice to say family issues, but there was no need to take it out on you. i apologize.

    I also didn't necessarily need to snap. like I said, I'm short on patience at the moment. So more things tick me off quicker than normal. Like birds. Those fuckers chirping woke me up this morning. Bastards.....

    All good.

    Hi.

    @reaper239 and nikvoodoo:
    I repped you both. It is kind of a virtue, if people stand up for their 'mistakes' or what they did. It's a pleasure to have people like you around.

    All the best!
